Homework

Homework Expectations
For each year level we align the time to be spent on homework tasks, based on the Department of Education and Training P-12 Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Framework.
Homework is most effective when it:
·         is clearly related to class work.
·         is appropriate to particular years of schooling . 
·         is varied and differentiated to individual learning needs.
·         consolidates, revises and/or applies students’ classroom learning.
·         develops students’ independence as a learner through extension activities such as investigating, researching, writing, designing and making.
·         assists students to prepare for upcoming classroom learning, such as collecting relevant materials and information, completing surveys and audits.
·         is monitored by the teacher, given feedback and signed. 
 
Points to Note:
 
·        Students - who are not completing their expected homework, will need to complete it in consultation between the teacher, the parents/guardians and the student.
     (School Detentions/Reflections are not used as punishment for unfinished homework).
 
·         Homework is NOT just given for the sake of it.
 
·        At Walloon homework expectations will be be clearly communicated to parents and students regularly (via Home-Diaries, email, notes home).
·         We understand that Homework is used to improve the “quality of our school” and the “learning” our students receive at our school!
